Contemporary Labor Economics 12e presents labor economics as an applied field of micro and macro theory. The authors deliver new and updated discussions of economic trends, public policy issues, content coverage and World of Work examples to help students apply labor economics, while still integrating traditional topics. A consistent framework, as well as a clear, direct and uncluttered writing style, help students grasp concepts regardless of their background training in economics. Connect Economics (McGraw-Hill's online assignment and assessment tool) pairs with McConnell to provide assignable, auto-gradable versions of the reading and test bank content. Students receive detailed step-by-step feed back on assignments and assignable content is fully integrated with the eBook. Students are also able to search, highlight, and take notes within the ReadAnywhere eBook and complete SmartBook 2.0 assignments offline. Connect provides instructors with powerful reporting tools allowing them to plan, track, and analyze student performance across learning outcomes.
